Children’s drawings are much more than just a drawing or artwork for your child. Children’s drawings provide a wealth of information about the experiences and child development. Drawing is one way of the child to express, what is in the child’s head about. Also give a picture of children’s development of motor skills of the young child.
Drawing is often seen as a hobby, a fun enjoyable experience for the child. Most young children love to draw pictures. Signs alone is more than just fun. Our children while drawing are telling their own story. It is an important tool to develop motor skills, a good mastery of fine motor skills.
The way children is drawing shows their emotional world. There are many symbols that typically occur in some feelings at certain ages and age-related problems. Children’s telling you about their life. In the first years of life, all the drawings that children make are absolutely identical and therefore not culture-bound. Like learning to walk or cleanliness are the age limits are flexible. Attach the drawings for us adults often seem to just get some scratching will form that we can distinguish. We will also distinguish in girls ‘and boys’ drawings.
Once a toddler could grab a piece of chalk, it will do the drawing. This will happen around the age of about 2 years. At first the drawings seem no more than arbitrary lines on paper, but there’s definitely in shape. The first drawings of the child is “boundless” marks. The child will is not limited to paper, but regular peaks on the border. The motor has not yet developed sufficient control over the child the crayon / pencil. Where a child’s third birthday uitluitend “boundless” drawings produced, this may indicate a developmental or spastic draw. It would also be able to indicate any traumatic experiences. The child was the “boundless” signs like the Pleasant flight.
From one year or two, you see that many children will draw oval circles. The child draws no longer on the edges, but limited to the paper. This oval symobol means security and protection. The circle also speaks “I want to hear”. Later additions of these drawings have stripes, which are the suns. Children draw the sun from inside to outside, from outside to inside. The rays symbolize the interaction of the child with the world around them. The Suns signed will first center on the paper yet, but when the child reached the fourth year, the “suns” shift to the top of the sheet. The way Sun draws a toddler has to do with the degree to which the child separate from the mother. When a child to his fifth year of life suns signed middle of the sheet, this may be due to an incomplete separation process.
Coils are constructed primarily between the ages of two and four years. These spirals symoliseren the development and growth of the child. It also called the no-stress phase, in which children of that age are in order. In contemporary art symbolyseert the spiral form is often a development, a transitional step or a desire to it.
Around the third year, children begin to draw dots. These occur when flashing I-consciousness. Dots are often put on paper and rhythmic singing zoms children themselves in this process. Despite the often chaotic arrangement of the farthing dip dots in order and to hold the concentration. Dots with the child tries to tell here I am.
Then the child draws diligently circle and tries to be fully opened.
Slowly, the whirling movements become more relaxed.
Striving for more balance follows. By keeping your balance standing in the room. This allows the infant by drawing crosses. Intersections symbolize actively go against a situation. Crosses will be drawn mainly aged between three and six years. When children outside this age crossing signs, it means that the child is a choice staarst or frustrated.
Drawing on crosses move often marked by a circle with a line attached to it. The line crosses the circle, however. This picture symbolizes “wanting to belong”.
From age four, children will consciously organize their paper and the colors will be chosen consciously. It will also clearly figurative draw.
